Three bags full : [a sheep detective story] by Leonie Swann( Sound Recording )
22 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 352 libraries worldwide
A witty philosophical murder mystery with a charming twist: the crack detectives are sheep determined to discover who killed their beloved shepherd. On a hillside near the cozy Irish village of Glennkill, the members of the flock gather around their shepherd, George, whose body lies pinned to the ground with a spade. George has cared for the sheep, reading them a plethora of books every night. The daily exposure to literature has made them far savvier about the workings of the human mind than your average sheep. Led by Miss Maple, the smartest sheep in Glennkill (and possibly the world), they set out to find George' s killer. The A-team of investigators includes Othello, the "bad-boy" black ram; Mopple the Whale, a merino who eats a lot and remembers everything; and Zora, a pensive, black-faced ewe with a weakness for abysses. Joined by other members of the richly talented flock, they engage in nightlong discussions about the crime and wild metaphysical speculations, and they embark on reconnaissance missions into the village, where they encounter some likely suspects. There' s Ham, the terrifying butcher; Rebecca, a village newcomer with a secret and a scheme; Gabriel, the shady shepherd of a very odd flock; and Father Will, a sinister priest. Along the way, the sheep confront their own all-too-human struggles with guilt, misdeeds, and unrequited love. Three Bags Full is already an international hit. Funny, fresh, and endearing, it introduces a wonderful breed of detectives to American audiences

Es ist soweit: für die Schafe von Glennkill beginnt ein neues, wollsträubendes Abenteuer. Gemeinsam mit ihrer Schäferin Rebecca haben sie die irische Heimat verlassen und ihre ersehnte Europareise angetreten! In Frankreich beziehen sie Winterquartier im Schatten eines entlegenen Schlosses, und eigentlich könnte es dort recht gemütlich sein - wären da nicht die Ziegen auf der Nachbarweide, die mysteriöse Warnung eines fremden Schafes und das allgemeine Unbehagen vor dem Schnee. Ein Mensch im Wolfpelz! - wispern Ziegen und Menschen. Ein Werwolf! Ein Loup Garou! Oder doch nur ein Hirngespinst? Als dann ein Toter am Waldrand liegt, ist nicht mehr klar, wer gefährlicher ist: der Garou oder seine Jäger. Fest steht, dass die Schafe schnell Licht ins Dunkel bringen müssen, um sich selbst und ihre Schäferin zu schützen. Und schon bald folgen sie mit bewährter Schafslogik einer ersten Spur, die sie durch die Gänge des Schlosses und das Schneegestöber der Wälder führt

Eines Morgens liegt der Schäfer George Glenn tot im Gras, von einem Spaten an den Boden genagelt. Wer könnte den alten Schäfer umgebracht haben? Miss Maple, das klügste Schaf der Herde und vielleicht sogar der Welt, beginnt sich für den Fall zu interessieren. Glücklicherweise hat George den Schafen Kriminalromane vorgelesen, und so trifft sie das kriminalistische Problem nicht unvorbereitet. Mit Schafslogik verfolgen sie die Spur des Täters, wenn sie nicht gerade grasen oder sich zu Tode fürchten. Zwischen Weide und Dorfkirche, Steilklippe und Schäferwagen warten ungeahnte Abenteuer auf Miss Maple und ihre Herde, bis es ihnen tatsächlich gelingt, Licht ins Dunkel zu bringen und den rätselhaften Tod ihres Schäfers aufzuklären. Leonie Swann wurde für "Glennkill"mit dem, auch als "Krimi-Oscar"bekannten, Friedrich-Glauser-Preis 2006 in der Sparte "Debüt"ausgezeichnet
